NASA says space junk crashed onto the roof of the family's home

A mysterious object, suspected to be space debris, has crashed into a family's home in Florida, leaving them shocked and searching for answers. Alejandro Otero, a homeowner in Naples, said the object that burned in it could have been either space junk or a meteorite. “It's either space junk or a space meteorite. It's 50/50,” he said. Otero's son was home alone at the time of the accident and heard a loud bang. “It was a huge sound,” Otero recalls. “It almost hit my son. He was two rooms in and heard everything.” After discovering the body, Otero contacted the Collier County Sheriff's Office. In a video, he expressed disbelief, saying: “Is it heavy? Holy cow. Are you kidding me,” as his son dug the object out of a hole in the ground. Otero was in shock after the accident. “I was shaking, and I was in complete disbelief. What are the odds of something falling on my house that hard to cause that much damage? And just like you know, I'm just so thankful that no one got hurt.” Otero suspects the object may be debris from the International Space Station (ISS). NASA confirmed it was from the International Space Station on Monday. NASA said: “Reason for the debris to remain and update modeling and analysis as needed.” The debris was a strut of their flight support equipment, weighing 1.6 pounds and measuring 4 inches long and 1.6 inches in diameter.
